Delta Moves at Light Speed to Complete Wi-Fi Installs

Posted by Travel Sentry

Delta Airlines
is moving at light speed to install Wi-Fi capability onboard its domestic bound planes.

The Atlanta Business Chronicle reports that "of the more than 300 airplanes Atlanta-based Delta operates on U.S. routes, 139 now have Gogo Inflight Internet, including Delta’s entire MD-88 fleet. The MD-90 fleet will be complete by the end of May with the remainder of the domestic fleet scheduled for completion by September."

Delta said it offers more Wi-Fi onboard than any airline worldwide. The company's future plans to connect its passengers include Wi-Fi installation for some 200 pre-merger Northwest airplanes, which are slated for completion next year.

Once complete, Delta will have more than 500 aircraft offering Wi-Fi.
